Re: Can't Install My Printer!

zdrew,

 

Since you already tried connecting the printer, if you can see it in control panel, programs and features, remove the printer. If it is not there, then you'll have to manually remove the printer drivers.

Restart your computer.

 

Download the proper Vista Drivers, they're suppose to be backward compatible.

 

Vista 32-bit Drivers

 

Vista 64-bit Drivers

 

Install the proper drivers, you might have to install them using the compability mode.

FYI..... Dell will not release any Win-7 drivers until they actually begin shipping Win-7 on their PC's.
